This weekend, the George Mason University men’s tennis season gets underway with its first fall event.

The Men’s Fall Invitational will be played here at Mason on Saturday, Sept. 11, and Sunday, Sept. 12.

The men’s team will tentatively only be participating in tournaments this fall; regular matches are not part of the schedule.

Head Coach Gary Quam said in an interview that, as of last week, the organizers of the tournament were considering using a flighted system for the tournament.

This means that instead of overall team scoring, there would be four groups of 1-2 students from each school facing off against each other.

It would be a new approach for Mason tennis, which used team scoring last season.

Coach Quam could not be reached to confirm that the new flighted system would be used.
